  1. Thats a shame. Had a quick look here and it went straight over my head. https://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap4/bootstrap_flex.asp
  2. It may be worth contacting Gary and see what he says as it was his suggestion last time that it should just work. He may know what is different.
  3. You are right. I have just tried and regardless of what I try I cannot replicate the layout I had in Frozen. Something somewhere must have changed. I have had a quick look through the module files and the template files and they look very much the same. . I will have to dig deeper.
  4. The only code changed was mentioned in the original thread you found. It was CSS added to the user.css file to control the length of the image placeholder. I did also add some padding to the buy now button as I wanted to make that intl a module which would have had padding in it but that has been done now in the latest version. I am about to try the same thing on the latest Phoenix version so it will be interesting to see if it still works.
  5. Lee, it was just a case of playing with the sort orders and the widths as explained in the original post. The gallery was set to 6 and everything else was either 3 or 6 apart from the product name that was still 12. Here is an image of the settings from admin.
  6. I dont understand why its a deal breaker. It would take someone that knew what they were doing a few hours work to transfer the relevant database tables to a new database. I had someone do it the last time i upgraded from ms2 to BS Edge and the cost was a lot less than I thought it would be. Not every table needs to be transferred. it is probable something that many could do themselves but I have no inclination to mess with my database, its been working for too long. As to converting your addons, that may take a lot longer, but most software needs updating at some point and if you rely on your store to earn money then what ever money is spent on your store is a business expense and should be factored in to your pricing. Think of a website upgrade and a repaint of a bricks and mortar store. Most payment modules will work as far as I know. The big problem will be updating them for the latest strong customer authentication updates next month. The admin side has been left and is still very much the same as all the BS versions and even as far back as 2.3 versions so admin mods will require no modifications hopefully.
  7. So my point remains in that to update to a newer version of the files you just over write the core files that you have with the latest version ones. It does not matter if the core files are being changed or added to as thats what updating will do.
  8. As long as you know what you have changed it's fine. I thought the idea was that updating the software is a case of replacing the core files. If you alter core files you will have to alter them again when updating. I keep a record of the changes I make to the language files so they can easily be changed again after an upgrade. At the end of the day it's up to you what you do and how you do it.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    Just be patient.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    I use Stripe as a payment method on my site and notice that the payment module itself has not been updated since 2014. The module works fine as it is so there is nothing to worry about. Stripe have updated their API recently and I was wondering if oscommerce was ever going to update this module.
  11. What should really be done is to create a new module with a different name and upload it. Then remove the current module and replace with the new one. That way keeps core code files safe for when updating the site with a full file upload overwrite.

    Products with no Orders

    Didnt Gary do a module to redirect old products to a new or similar product of your choice which helped with SEo. I could be imagining it though.

    Bundled Products

    Contact @burt by message as he did something in his 28 days of code which he initially did for me. It allows you make up a new product of a bundle of items from items already in stock. If a bundle is sold it reduces the items individual stock levels, to a point where it will not allow purchase of a bundle in one of the items are not in stock.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    I tried a while ago to get a developer to recode the module, but not one that I could find would actually do it and allow the code to be released on the forum for free or donations. In the end I gave up. Hopefully something will be done before the deadline as I got another email today from Stripe letting me know I needed to do something. All we can do is wait and see.

    Products with no Orders

    @Mort-lemur This looks like it could be a great help. Never really thought about this sort of thing in the past. When I discontinue a product I move it to a hidden category for a few months just in case I bring the product back or an alternative one from another supplier. This should make the job so much easier.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    I use the version from 20th May 2014 My site is only running Edge at the minute but I see no reason why it wont work on Frozen. https://apps.oscommerce.com/1x52L&bank-transfer-payment-option
  17. As many will already know I have a .com oscommerce site up and running. I now been able to buy the .co.uk. What should I do with the .co.uk. Some have suggested just having a redirect to the .com which seems a bit of a waste, whilst others have suggested having a fixed page website with things like information pages and practical advice rather than have all the links on the oscommerce site. Sort of turn it into a blog type site if that makes any sense with links to the old site. What would be best for the business and the website whilst also considering SEO. I may even use it for testing a copy of Phoenix for now.

    FYI, thought this would be of interest.

    Google have similar tools to show percentage of mobile use. If someone uses Analytics and is not using a mobile version they should look to see what numbers are viewing their site using a smaller device. It surprised me when I initially looked. Knowing your desired customer base also helps.

    is osCommerce safe to use?

    See this thread here for further information.

    is osCommerce safe to use?

    The Phoenix version is the latest community version. It is available for download from the main oscommerce downloads page of from various peoples signature links.

    is osCommerce safe to use?

    I would only use the Phoenix version. Other versions are no longer being developed or maintained or are really old and could be insecure. As far as I am aware there are no vulnerabilities with the Phoenix version.
  22. Not too sure language errors are essential and a priority as most store owners would need to change these anyway. I went through nearly every language file and altered something just to make the site different to many others. Saying that they ought to be right.
  23. Isnt there a cards module already in the footer or was that something I added to my site.

    What to do with .com and .co.uk

    Cheers @Jack_mcs. What you have said makes sense about the names boing similar so a simple redirect may be the way to go.
  25. Totally off topic I know but there is nothing stopping you, or anyone else, creating a package that makes changes to the core code to comply with country specific legal requirements. If everything was kept country specific it would make loading them and updating them easy as each countries requirements changed. A package that would alter things like address layouts, tax values, date and time formats, and all sorts of other changes would be a start to making the code international.
